A point charge produces an electric flux of +235 Nm2/C+235 \mathrm{~N} \cdot \mathrm{m}^2 / \mathrm{C} through a gaussian sphere of radius 45.0 cm45.0 \mathrm{~cm} centered on the charge. What is the flux through a gaussian sphere with a radius 32.5 cm32.5 \mathrm{~cm} ?

The known values are given as follows:

  • Electric flux: Φ=+235 Nm2C\Phi = +235\mathrm{~\dfrac{N \cdot m^2}{C}}
  • radius of initial gaussian sphere: ri=45.0 cmr_i = 45.0\text{ cm}
  • radius of actual gaussian sphere: ra=32.5 cmr_a = 32.5\text{ cm}

In this part of the exercise, we are asked to determine the electric flux through the actual gaussian sphere.
